Had lunch here recently with a friend, and enjoyed it very much. The service was excellent, and our food was delicious. I had the potato soup with crushed dill pickle...they were kind enough to let me try a tiny ramekin of it first...and it was outstanding! I also had the egg salad sandwich which... read more

I had lunch here when visiting St Louis for work. It was my first time and I was very impressed. The service was courteous, and extremely fast. Our food was delivered very quickly, within minutes. My panini was fresh and flavorful, the side salad full of crisp lettuce and veggies. I will return here again!

We ventured here with a group of friends after a trip to Schlafly Tap Room down the street. I got a sundae, which you can personalize with any ice cream you want (this was the same with anything on the menu, they let you switch out flavors any time you want). my husband got an Old Fashioned, which wasn't quite...

My family and I went here for dinner and stayed for dessert. It really was the dessert that made the meal. Great service, good food, great dessert is the best way to describe it.

Life's uncertain; eat dessert first. The ice cream martinis are insane!! The rest of the menu is tasty, but know that it's just soup, salad, sandwiches. They do them all quite well. The walls/ceiling are hand painted and worth your time just to see them! Great little place.

In most contests, ice cream would win over soup - at least for me. But what I find my mouth watering over is their Dill Pickle Soup. It's really potato with heavy dill influence, but it is so very good. And great ice cream, too. Love the itty-bitty hot fudge sundaes for after a meal - the ginormous treats when... More

I am so glad that I decided to stop in here for an old-fashioned ice cream soda. Although I very rarely eat ice cream, the thought of a real ice cream soda was too enticing to pass up. For the first time ever, I tried a black cherry soda- fantastic. The Fountain offers a great selection of ice cream flavors... More

We went to a wonderful performance of Phantom of the Opera at the Fox and this was our choice for after theater dessert. The Bananas Bourbon sundae was excellent, I got a taste of my mother's almond coconut with hot fudge sundae and it was great as well.

My husband and I and another couple went yesterday for a late lunch. From the pictures it looks pretty spacious. It's not as big as it looks. We were sat in a corner with limited chair space around us. Making it hard to stay out of the cramped aisle that people tried to walk through. The lights were too dim.... More
